High School Art Class Explores “White on Black” Drawing

High School Art Class Explores "White on Black" Drawing

In Art class, students were required to do a project called “White on Black.” Students created a piece focusing on value (not forgetting line and shape/form) by drawing a piece using chiaroscuro. Instead of focusing on drawing shadows, students were to focus on drawing the light. Students used a photograph that used chiaroscuro as a reference. By doing this project students were able to show their understanding of value and how to apply that knowledge in their art work.
